It almost felt like the first weekend of Spring in Saskatchewan.
Regina shattered a 25-year warm weather record on Saturday. It reached 9 C, beating the record set in 1991 at 6.6 C.
Wynyard, Yorkton and Broadview also broke records. Wynyard got up to 4.5 C, narrowly beating the record of 4.2 C set in 1987, Yortkon hit 6.1 C, breaking the record of 4.7 C set in 1987 and Broadview reached a high of 6.1 C, breaking the record of 5 C set in 1991.
Saskatoon enjoyed the mild temperatures over the weekend, but Saturday’s 4 C high didn’t come close to the 1991 record of 8 C.
The system that brought snow and freezing rain to southern Saskatchewan on Saturday has now passed through Manitoba.
“We have a lot of warm air crossing the mountains so we’ll have some warm air moving in to Regina, well to most of (the region) especially southwestern Saskatchewan with highs in the 5 to 8 degree range, so quite warm,” said Robyn Dyck, meteorologist with Environment Canada.
The forecast today and Tuesday calls for some snow in Saskatoon.
There is also the potential for freezing rain between the Battlefords and Swift Current overnight on Monday.
The rest of the week looks pretty warm.
